Re: liberty architecture moving to ground zero?
All buildings, whether they be 'architecture' or not, function as symbols.
Steven Holl's building facades and urban patterns
Holl's (personal) use of watercolors coincides with the rise of CAD within architecture--a not so atypical reaction among those architects that perceived CAD as anti-craft and thus a bad thing.
Mind you, I enjoy watercoloring myself, yet I would never use it to demonstrate how some other medium is somehow evil or inferior. You would think architects are smart enough to embrace or at least consider all the options that are available. (I know, I know, it isn't easy to embrace a medium that one is completely ignorant of.)
